Memory Parity Error

2010-11-11, 11:53 AM

A few days ago my husband installed extra memory in my ThinkCenter MT-M 8122-W1K

On start up or by re-booting I get this message:

***Hardware Malfunction
NMI: Parity Check
Memory Parity Error
***The System has  halted***


The memory is okay checked it with the toolbox.  The only way I can get windows to load is by un-plugging my DLink wait 30 seconds & plug it back in then all is fine.


I am not a techie so really do not know what to do about this and would appreciate some help.


NOTE:  my husband removed the extra memory & it still did the same thing as above.

Take out both modules. Clean them with "contact cleaner". Also clean both memory socket with "contact cleaner" too. Reinsert both modules and look what happen.


Best regards.
